Patients starting to come into the ER sicker, some after they were earlier discharged in seemingly stable condition, doctor says
Jon Santiago, an emergency-room doctor at Boston Medical Center (and also a state representative from the South End), talked this morning about the shift he was just getting off, reports that what's happening is already raising troubling questions about such things as who to put on a ventilator:
I feel things are picking up in Boston, not just in volume but in how sick these #covid19 #coronavirus patients are presenting. The decision to put anyone on a ventilator is risky and challenging, much more so in this era. My last patient this shift was another reminder. pic.twitter.com/DetydxK8ox
